Somebody on the #AskAgent Tumblr asked about writing an "NA Romance" that doesn't have HEA. But like... then it isn't a Romance...? If it is a ROMANCE, it has to have HEA/HFN. It can be a book with some romance IN IT and have an ambiguous or unhappy ending. But not a ROMANCE.

Jade M. GOREn 🎃🔮 @jadewritesbooks

@dreamoforgonon Since YA is said to be over saturated, is there more demand or interest in adult titles (particularly SFF) now or has it stayed the same? #AskFuse

I can't speak to the YA market, but I would say Adult SFF is a perennial -- it never really wavers in popularity. Certain genres do come and go -- it's still very hard to do Urban Fantasy at traditional publishers these days, for instance. #AskFuse twitter.com/jadewritesbook…

@dreamoforgonon What types of manuscripts are you folks sick of receiving right now (eg vampire books back in the Twilight era)? #AskFuse

As far as mysteries, I'm not really feeling a glut of anything. Still looking for domestic suspense, thriller, traditional, procedurals, but obviously fresh hooks are needed to break them out. #AskFuse

There's always room for a fresh take on anything, but in SFF in particular I would say we reached peak zombie a few years ago and we aren't ready for more yet. (Zombies and vampires tend to cycle. Vampires are back!) #AskFuse twitter.com/cwbuecheler/st…

Jason Allison @jasontallison

@Michrichter1 In terms of comps for tone and feel, must they be recently published titles, or can a writer cite slightly older works that were influential? Thanks. #askfuse

Recent is better, if possible. Like within the past 3 years. But if you must choose an older work, don't make it your only comp. I'm also not averse to "X meets Y" comps, or "with the humor of A and the characters of B". #AskFuse

At least one of your comparative titles should have been published in the last decade, preferably in the last 5 years. You can use more classic works as additional comps, but we need to know you understand the current market in your genre. #AskFuse twitter.com/jasontallison/…

Liz Boeger @LizBoegerAuthor

@dreamoforgonon Thank you. How beneficial do you find a fiction author's blog to be in the pre-representation stage?

Honestly, these days I think author blogs are pretty irrelevant unless you have a preexisting, strong blog following. You'll get more results from a newsletter via Substack or something similar. #AskFuse twitter.com/LizBoegerAutho…
